Careful For Nothing

“Careful For Nothing”

~~Lois Beckwith


“Careful for nothing,” ’tis the Shepherd’s voice,

“Be of good cheer,” “forevermore rejoice,”

Precious the truth this message doth impart,

Comforts, encourages, and cheers the heart.

 

“Careful for nothing,” wondrous love is shown,

In His desire expressed thus for His own;

Seeking to give them through life’s pathway here

Freedom from worry, care, or doubt, or fear.

 

“Careful for nothing,” for His love would share

Every perplexity and every care;

“In everything,” whate’er the problem be,

“Let your requests be made known” unto Me.

 

Bringing thy burden then in simple prayer,

Commit it all unto a Father’s care;

Trusting His love, from doubt and worry cease,

For He desires to give thee perfect peace.

 

Peace, rest, and joy, He giveth day by day,

His perfect peace, which nought can take away:

Peace, that the world can never understand,

Peace, that comes only from a Father’s hand.

 

What richer portion could one ever find,

Than perfect peace of heart, and rest of mind?

And ’tis His promise, He will safely keep,

Throughout life’s pathway, every single sheep.

 

“Careful for nothing,” to be then content,

All He allows is for thy blessing sent;

“In everything give thanks” unto the Lord,—

All will work out for good; it is His Word.

 

“Careful for nothing,” what is there to fear

Since He has promised to be ever near?

“Careful for nothing,” what-so-e’er betide,

Peace is thy portion, with Him at thy side.

 

Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

And the peace of God, which passes all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7


Casting all your care upon Him; for He care for you. 1 Peter 5:7

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trust in Thee. Isaiah 26:3

I would have you without carefulness. 1 Corinthians 7:32

Peace I leave with you, MY PEACE I GIVE UNTO YOU: not as the world give, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27
